Quentin Lee combines five short films into his first feature that he describes as “an allegory of the fictive history of gay Asian films.” It opens with an introduction to a 22-year-old queer Asian filmmaker who is looking for love while trying to finish his latest work, a character not unlike Lee himself. What follows is a mix of autobiography and fiction, including a parody of a safer sex public announcement, a knife-wielding drag queen, a film noir about a young man who kills his mother on Christmas Day, a surrealistic vampire tale and a story of romance on the college campus. Lee successfully fuses together fact with fantasy, a diversity of genre and queer and Asian identities in this celebratory work.
